France Sends Books 
For Student Prizes 

Mme. Chiang Kai-Shek could 
not be present at the reunion of 
her class, 1917, or the graduation 
of her new class, 1938, of which 
she is an honorary member, yet 
she has not forgotten heV Welles- 
ley affiliations. Each member of 
the two classes will receive, as a 
remembrance from her, a tea 
bowl, a packet of her favorite 
brand of tea, and a small Chinese 
flag. In addition to these in- 
dividual gifts, a personal repre- 
sentative of Mme. Chiang pre- 
sented to the college an eight- 
foot-long Chinese flag. Also, to 
members of 1917 their classmate 
sent small teaspoons. If extra 
tea bowls remain after breakage 
allowance, they will, following Mme. 
Chiang's suggestion, be given to 
Tau Zeta Epsllon, her society. 

The college received the gifts 
from the former Mayllng Soong 
at a presentation ceremony Fri- 
day afternoon in the faculty tea 
room in Green hall. Class officers 
of 1938 and 1917 accepted for their 
members. Other members present 
at the ceremony included Mrs. 
William H. Baltzell, chairman of 
the gifts committee, for the trus- 
tees, F. Murray Forbes, a former 
ambassador to China and to 
Japan, Sally Curtis '38 and Dor- 
othy Stout '39, the outgoing and 
new presidents of T. Z. E. 

The class of 1917 has sent gifts 
also, not to their classmate but to 
China. They have sent the money 
usually spent on costumes to the 
aid of starving children in the 
Chinese war. During their re- 
union dinner at 1812 house Satur- 
day evening they will drink from 
their tea bowls not to, but with, 
Mme. Chiang, in accordance with 
her written request.

tion song. Classes will be judged on

Wellesley Students Receive Volumes; 

Library Exhibits Collection 

In Reading Room 

The French government sent Wel- 
lesley college a number of books to 
be distributed as prizes among the 
best students of the department of 
French. The following students re- 
ceived awards for the excellence of 
their work in French: Phyllis Barrett 
'38. Virginia Dwinell '38, Lucile John- 
son '38, Alice Pasternak '38, Carol 
Strater '38, Hannah Thomas '38, 
Camilla Davis '39, Vivian Delaney '40, 
Clarice Grosshandler '40, Edna Jef- 
fery '40, Margaret Samson '40. Dor- 
othy Dart. grad.. and Katherlne 
Deering, grad. 

The French department of educa- 
tion is presenting sets of contempo- 
rary French books to '*the leading 
universities and colleges of America 
which have especially contributed to 
the development and spreading of 
French literature and science in the 
United States." Wellesley college 
has just received over 150 works. 
This valuable collection will be ex- 
hibited this week-end in the reading 
room of the library. 

Seated behind a desk laden down 
with philosophy examinations and all 
the official literature that encumber 
the life of a dean during these short 



days before commencement. Dean 
Mary L. Coolldge gave little Impres- 
sion of the college administrator or 
the eve of resignation. She is still 
too preoccupied with academic pro- 
grams and faculty committee meetings 
to give sericus consideration to per- 
sonal plans for the future. 

"I feel half-witted." she insisted, 
"at not having anything to tell my 
friends about my plans for next year." 
Dean Coolidge will be away on leave 
during 1938-39, but with her pres- 
ent concern with college plans way 
in advance, she admits that "it Is a 
great relief to think of a year in 
which nothing will have to be planned 
until the last moment." When that 
moment does arrive. Dean Coolidge 
will hie herself to "a university lib- 
rary in a university atmosphere," 
where relieved of the pressure of 
constant committee work she will 
have some real leisure for study and 
research. Philosophical value theories 
are her particular field of interest 
and she intends to devote some time 
to the study of those theories In 
connection with various of the so- 
cial sciences. 

Concerning her plans for a "vaca- 
tion" Dean Coolidge mentioned a trip 
abroad that will combine the plea- 
sures of study and relaxation. "I 
am looking forward to a spring in 
Europe — England, or Italy perhaps,

The reception will be held in 
Alumnae hall in the event of rain. 


Class statistics show that alum- 
nae from all over the United 
States and the world will meet 
here in varying numbers this 
week-end. The class of 1918 is 
planning on having the greatest 
number present, 150, and has one 
member who will fly from Cali- 
fornia, Edith (Mitcheft) Coffeen, and 
another, Daisy Atterbury, who has 
come from China. 1913 ranks next 
with 138 members, several of whom 
come from long distances — Marian 
(Rider) Robinson from China, sev- 
eral from California, one from 
Montana, and possibly one from 
Haiti. The class of 1919 will have 
98 representatives, some from 
Ohio, Indiana. Illinois, Iowa, Wis- 
consin, and North Carolina. 

Twenty-five members of "88 will

come from Germany, and Ruth 
I Roche) Elder, who arrived from 
Termanshah, Persia. '99 will send 
a member from California, Grace 
(Sutherland) Leonard; from Man-

Seniors To Observe 
Tradition At Supper 

The annual senior supper will be 
held on Monday, June 20, in Alum- 
nae hall at 7 p. m. There will be a 
special table for the guests of honor 
in the class of '38, among whom are 
Miss Mildred H. McAfee and Miss Lucy 
Wilson, dean of the graduating class. 

Virginia Spangler '38 will be toast- 
mistress and Patricia Dyer '38, chair- 
man of the supper. The age-old tra- 
dition by which members of the class 
who are engaged run around the 
table and married members stand on 
their chairs will again be observed. 

1917, in White, Sends Costume 

Fund to Madame Chiang 

For Chinese Orphans 


The alumnae will show their or- 
iginality in a parade this afternoon, 
Saturday. June 18, at 3:30 p. m. 
on Tower Court green and will re- 
ceive awards for their ideas at 4:30 
p.m. in the Greek theatre of Alum- 
nae hall. The classes of 1879. '80, 
'81, and '83, who have been out of 
college the longest, will not take part 
In the parade but will show their 
class spirit by wearing ribbons of 
their class colors, or tags bearing their 
class numerals. 

White will predominate. Members 
of 1888, here for their fiftieth re- 
union, will "aim at elegant simplicity 
and uniformity" by wearing white 
dresses, accessories of the same color 
and bunches of violets, their class 
flower. 1901 will also wear all white 
and will carry bunches of red car- 
nations. '98 will have white dresses 
and cornflower blue accessories, while 
1913 will wear iris blue to contrast 
with the white. 1900 will recall the 
"Gay Nineties" In their purple "Gib- 
son Girl" hats and big purple veils. 

To show their "perennial fresh- 
ness," members of "99 will don green 
capes and carry green bags. The 
class of 1920 aims at a Spanish effect. 

Members of '17 will carry flags, 
banners, and placards explaining that 
they are without costumes because 
the money has been sent to "May- 
ling," (Madame Chiang Kai-Shek) to 
aid orphaned Chinese children. Their 
theme, however, will be Chinese, from 
the "class baby" dressed In Chinese 
costume to the grotesque Chinese 
Hon In the rear. 

The parade of the class of '18 will 
be a humorous parody of the alpha- 
betical triplets of today— the WPA, 
the CCC. AAA. and others. 1919 will 
cavort in blue and white printed

President Comments 
On Faculty Changes 

Committee Studies Problem 

of Proper Emphasis on 

Teachers' Training 

In connection with the announce- 
ment of new appointments to the 
faculty for the year 1938-1939. Presi- 
dent Mildred H. McAfee made the 
following statement: 

"Sixty years ago. in 1878, Wellesley 
established a Teachers' Registry 'by 
which those students who expected to 
teach might bring their qualifications 
before the schools of the country.' 
Ihus early In its history the college 
testified to its Interest in having Its 
graduates enter the teaching profes- 
sion. The department of education 
antedated the state laws on certifica- 
tion and was a pioneer In emphasiz- 
ing the importance of the study of 
education as a part of a liberal arts 

"There is at present a wide-spread 
interest throughout the country in 
the most effective method of train- 
ing teachers and In the responsibility 
of the liberal arts college for per- 
forming that function. It has seemed 
to be an opportune time for Welles-

Miss Emma Mills 9 17 Speaks of 

Her Friend, Mme. Chiang Kai-Shek 

By Jane StraJian 

Among those returning for the 1917 
reunion Is Miss Emma De Long Mills, 
a close personal friend of Madame 
Chiang Kai-Shek both here at Wel- 
lesley and later In China. The reporter 
found Miss Mills in Severance about 
to be confronted with publicity cam- 
eras, and managed to corner her for 
a treasured interview. 

Miss Mills Is the granddaughter of 
the famous explorer whose adventures 
are recorded so vividly in Edward Ells- 
berg's Hfill on Ice. Saved from the 
wreckage of their ships which had been 
crushed by heavy ice Jams, DeLong 
and 8 or 9 members of his party died 
in northern Siberia of starvation and 
exposure. CT always tell doctors that 
when they ask me what my relatives 
have died of." Interjected Miss Mills, 
"it's very effective!") A recent article 
in the Nev) York Times told of the 
discovery of a message thought to have 
been left by Dr. DeLong, but Its iden- 
tification still remains uncertain. 

After graduation Miss Mills was In 
China for three years, mainly doing 
newspaper work. While there she was 
In close contact with Madame Chiang. 
"As a matter of fact." she said, "It was 
Mayllng who got me my first Job In 

China." Miss Mills has a natural en- 
thusiastic interest In the reunion of 
her class and Its dedication of parade 
costume money to Madame Chiang 
Kai-Shek. Miss Mills had with her 
several of the letters she had received 
recently from Madame Chiang, and the 
reporter was privileged to read them. 
"They sound Just like her," laughed 
Miss Mills, "but they are probably too 
personal to quote." The letters describe 
the gifts that Mayllng Soong Is send- 
ing, escorted by an attach^ of the 
Chinese embassy in Washington, to her 
classmates of 1917 and 1938. and carry 
her wish that she could be back In 
Wellesley too to renew those contacts 
made so long ago. One of the letters 
reads. "I only wish that I could have 
nothing to worry about but getting up 
for an eight o'clock class, but I re- 
member how hard I used to think It 
was on those cold winter mornings!" 
These letters, although written In the 
midst of wartime stress and fighting, 
show Madame Chiang Kai-Shek's pres- 
ence of mind and unfailing optimism. 
It Is with the poor war refugee child- 
ren that her work and greatest sym- 
pathy continues.

Letters Reveal 
Life In England 

Winifred Holtby Shows Change 

in Intellectual Life of 

Alert, Humorous Mind 

by Shirley Heidenburg 

Letters to a Friend, by Winifred 
Holtby, New York, Macmlllan Com- 
pany, 462 pp. $3.50. 

Written to a friend in South 
Africa, the letters of Winifred Holtby 
give a panoramic view of England 
behind the Intellectual life of the 
author during th« years after the 
World War. 

Miss Holtby's first letter, written in 
1920, reveals a girl keenly sensitive 
to the world about her despite her 
new dignity acquired with the position 
of teacher of history. Wltn tnt fresh- 
ness and vitality of one aware of what 
a splendid world It really is, she de- 
scribes a play, a tea party, and a 
paper she has written on "Hobbes' 
Theory of Natural History." Her last 
letter, dated July 4, 1934, tells of 
writing articles for Time and Tide, 
of working on a novel, and of an ap- 
pointment at the House of Commons. 
Yet she still finds "London so full 
of interesting things and people and 
swarming with life." 


Winifred Holtby's letters bear the 
impress of a mind bursting with ac- 
tivity. She has a masculine under- 
standing of politics and social and 
economic problems; yet she never 
loses her feminine interest in humani- 
ty. She cannot be casual about coal 
strikes and the possibilities of an- 
other war, and is often discouraged 
because of her own inadequacy to 
"do something." But there is al- 
ways the imp of good humor in her 
letters. Her delightful characteriza- 
tions and quips at the expense of 
the landlady or the chairman of the 
"Connaught Club" indicate her splen- 
did sense of humor and quick obser- 


During the decade in which she 
did not even see her correspondent 
she retains a lively Interest In their 
mutual friends. She is never too busy 
to see "Pugh" and to wonder how 
"old Brownie" Is getting on. Many 
times she longs to recapture the 
"old days," and in her letters is re- 
markably successful In making us re- 
live them with her. She reacts to 
the big things and the little things of 
life with equal warmth and gener- 
osity. Her "loves" range from the 
Charleston and Goethe's "Faust," 
to a "yellow cat with black stripes 
who lives in London bridge station." 
She writes about poetry and the cur- 
rent books, the people she meets, and 
the house she lives in, and does so 
in the clear running style which 
proves that/ letter writing is not a 
lost art. 


'Letters to a Friend" has a historic 
as well as a literary value. The book 
reflects the changing perspectives of 
men and women in the post-war re- 
construction period. Seen through the 
eyes of such an astute observer as 
Winifred Holtby the affairs of the 
hectic decade take on a surprising 
unity. When Winifred Holtby died 
in 1935, England lost a vital per- 
sonality as well as a splendid author. 
We are indeed fortunate to have this J 
chronicle of the beginnings of a j 
brilliant career.

African Farm Life 

The Mortal Storm. By Phyllis Bottome.

by Janet Bieber 

Out of Africa, by Isak Dinesen. Ran- 
dom House, New York, 1938. 388 
pp. Prioe $2.75. 

In the beginning of Out of Africa, 
Isak Dinesen explains the importance 
ol the rhythm of Africa as a clue 
to the understanding of the animals 
and the native people. This knowl- 
edge of the slow, meditative African 
rhythm lends power and strength to 
Miss Dlnesen's book. The author has 
taken the foreign tempo and made 
It an integral part of her being. She 
has learned this tempo and its varia- 
tions so completely that by telling the 
story of her African life she gives 
us an insight into the vitality of 
that continent. 

Isak Dinesen settled on a Kenya 
coffee farm and became one of the 
most important members of the com- 
munity. The understanding and love 
which she had for the native blacks 
was remarkable. It was friendship 
based on real understanding. She 
did not love Kamante, the little na- 
tive boy, because he was in any 
way like herself, but because she 
came to know and understand the 
things in his temperament which 
were foreign to her nature. She 
learned to love him for his courage 
and the calm composure in his al- 
most Oriental acceptance of his fate. 
The author's time was not spent en- 
tirely with the natives, for she learned 
the rhythm of animals as well as hu- 
mans. Her description of Lulu the an- 
telcpe provides an excellent example 
of her genius and her command of 

"Lulu by that time was only as big 
as a cat, with large, quiet, purple eyes. 
Her ears were smooth as silk and ex- 
ceedingly expressive. Her nose was as 
black as a truffle. Her diminutive 
hoofs gave her all the air of a young 
Chinese lady of the old school, with 
laced feet." 

Isak Dinesen had to leave the farm 
which could not be maintained on 
paying basis. "Farewell to the 
farm." the final chapter, is doubly 
sad. The reader can feel with the 
author and share her sorrow. And 
the reader feels equally sad because 
it Is the end of an adventure 
with a great person, one who had a 
genius for understanding people and 
a capacity for friendship, as well as 
a rare appreciation of nature and 

The Mortal Storm is the moving story 
of a family and its vain struggle for 
equilibrium against the alien uncer- 
tainty of Nazi Germany. The Immedi- 
acy of the theme bares the depths of 
human emotion and reveals the un- 
tried nobilities and weaknesses that 
are inevitable in time of stress. 

Professor Roth, a world famous Jew- 
ish scientist, and his aristocratic and 
loyal wife fight in the face of slander 
and injury to keep the unbiased lib- 
eralism that has been always theirs. 
Their two older sons, Olaf and Emil, 
are the passionate followers of the creed 
of the Ftihrer; the twelve-year-old 
Rudy Is a sensitive little Jew bewil- 
dered by the taunts of former friends 
and playmates. The story centers 
around Freya, the daughter, whose in- 
telligence and ideals rebel against the 
cold blooded methods of the Nazi re- 
gime, giddy with the realization of Its 
power. Freya gives her love to Hans, 
a fearless youth representing the solid 
German peasantry, who, before her 
eyes, Is shot for his communist con- 
victions. Professor Roth dies too as a 
dangerous enemy of the Reich, because 
he is an idealist and proud of being a 

The Mortal Storm is not only the 
saga of the Roth family but of the 
stifled humanity of all Nazi Germany. 
Olaf, so bullheadedly Nazi, is the youth 
that Hitler has created; "In his heart 
of hearts the acts he committed and 
still said were right, he really did not 
think right — this was his defeat." The 
author has drawn a strangely vivid 
picture of the innumerable human 
tragedies carried in the wake of a great 
national tragedy. Because we are to- 
day so close to "The Mortal Storm," it 
becomes vital to us as a dramatization 
of contemporary history. 

Sharpies. Both Warren and the other 
people develop from spiritless, puroose- 
less entitles into beings with a convic- 
tion in life. 

Primarily interested in the unfolding 
and change in Henry Warren, the 
author is also concerned with the effect 
that his accidental coming to Sharpies 
has on both Warren himself and on 
Its citizens. As a man Warren Is ab- 
sorbed in his work, his humanity 
warped by his wife's desertion. Decid- 
ing that change and exercise are what 
he needs most, he goes to northern 
England on a walking tour. Appen- 
dicitis attacks him and he is taken to 
Sharpies' community hospital. Here 
his quick mind surveys the town, which 
is quiet with the deadly calm of un- 
employment. How Warren manages tc 
change conditions, although imprison- 
ment Is his lot, is related dramatically 
by the author. 

The reader is compelled to race 
through the book, drawn by the power 
and rapidity of Mr. Shute's writing. 
The story. In itself, is interesting al- 
though a little far-fetched. Neverthe- 
less, the plot Is enhanced by the force 
of the author's style.

How can a man, deserted by his wife 
and at loose ends, recreate his life so 
that it once again has purpose? Kind- 
ling shows us the development of a 
great English financier from a mere 
machine into a human being with a 
conviction that what he is doing at last 
is right. 

Kindling is a study of Henry Warren, 
the financier, and of the small town of 

Dorothy Baker's Young Man with a 
Hern is a story that "has a ring of 
truth and an overtone or two." It is 
the story of a number of things — of 
the gap between a man's musical ability 
and his ability to fit it 'to his own life; 
of the difference between the demands 
of expression and the demands of life; 
and finally of the difference between 
good and bad in a native American art 
form, jazz music." The story has not 
a great tragic theme, though it ends 
with the death of Rick Martin, king 
of hot trumpeters, who had no choice 
other than to let out the rhythm In 
his soul. 

Rick Martin is skyrocketed to fame 
when a famous orchestra leader hears 
him and brings him to New York. In 
a Harlem night club he meets Amy 
North, brilliant, perverse, complex; she 
keeps her Phi Beta Kappa key hang- 
ing by a chain from the head of the 
shower, to "remind her she is too bright 
a girl ever to try anything funny In the 
bathroom like drowning herself stand- 
ing up or drinking iodine through a 
straw." Rick marries Amy, and they live 
a gay, impulsive life until Amy starts 
going to Columbia again, studying for 
her M. D. Rick still has his music and 
goes on playing the wildest and sweet- 
est trumpet you ever heard— he is an 
artist, "burdened with that difficult 
baggage, the soul of an artist. But 
he hasn't got the thing that should go 
with It— the ability to keep the body 
in check, while the spirit goes on being 
what it must be. And he goes to

The Austria or yesterday is Kurt 
Schuschnlgg's Fatherland, for which 
he sacrificed the Austrian Republic, 
and perhaps his own life. It is diffi- 
cult for us to understand the turmoil 
and political chaos which lay behind 
the formation of post-war Austria, and 
even more difficult to get at the heart 
of a man who so loved his ideal that 
he sacrificed his state. My Austria. 
the autobiographical history of a coun- 
try now dissolved perhaps forever, 
gives us a glimpse into the hidden 
soul of the German-Austrian spirit, 
and offers us an appreciative study of 
Austrian culture. 


The historical outline of Austrian 
growth, interesting in itself, is not 
the most remarkable part of this 
book. Although Mr. Schuschnigg, as 
he himself declares In the foreword, 
has attempted to keep his individu- 
ality from obscuring the development 
of the story, it Is his ideas, his per- 
sonality, which make the book more 
than a historical sketch, and trans- 
form it into a living testimonial of 
the Austrian spirit. The reader. In- 
deed, can be thankful that Mr. 
Schuschnigg failed in this purpose, for 
in so far as My Austria Is personal, 
it Is vivid, In so far as it Is individual. 
It is outstanding. 

The average American has been be- 
wildered by the claims and counter 
claims made in view of the recent 
dissolution of the Austrian state. Aus- 
trlans are undeniably German, indeed, 
in Mr. Schuschnlgg's own words Aus- 
tria's task "Is a conspicuously German 
task"; Austria's historical mission is to 
"build the bridge toward a new realiza- 
tion of the Reich idea In the modern 
age. To bring together the various na- 
tionalities, their civilizations and lan- 
guages ... for the sake of a common 
pacific development founded upon and 
led by German tradition . . . that Is 
Austria's historical mission in the new 
form," writes Mr. Schuschnigg. 

Anyone familiar with the militaristic 
doctrines and ideals of racial supremacy 
upon which the National Socialist State 
has been constructed can see In the 
pages of My Austria the eternal con- 
flict between two antagonistic German 


Aside from an inspired and well 
rounded picture of the Austrian 
ideal. My Austria gives a series 
of excellent. If one sided character 
sketchai of outstanding European 
politicians today. In the interna- 
tional field we see Mussolini. Von 
Papen, Von Schleicher. Von Hihden- 
burg, and many other German dig- 
nitaries. First among Austrian states- 
men comes Engelbert Dollfuss, assas- 
sinated by the Nazis July 25. 1935. to 
whom Mr. Schuschnigg dedicates his 

We cannot, as we read his story, 
fail In sympathy and admiration for 
the man who denied the state to save 
the ideal; who gave up the Austrian 
Republic rather than surrender the 
Austrian reverence for tolerance, 
humanity, and peace. He declares, 

"There stands at the end of all 
questioning, the clear proud German 
utterance, defying all storms and 
reverses, all cheap detraction; one 
for all time: Austria! Austria! Again, 
and forever, Austria!"

The Future Of 

Wellesley Drama 

With the beginning of summer vaca- 
tion directly in front of us the mention 
of next year and next year's activities 
is distinctly out of place. And yet there 
are many of us who are constantly 
looking ahead where drama is con- 
cerned. In the past the drama at Wel- 
lesley has not been consistent in 
its attainments, although this fluctua- 
tion is to be expected because of the 
ever shifting population. Nevertheless, 
with a dramatic club such as Barn- 
swallows, with a theatre such as 
Alumnae hall, with a play production 
course such as Theatre Workshop, and 
with many academic drama courses 
from classical times to the modern 
period, there Is no reason why we 
should not maintain a high level of 
production. Surely we have the intelli- 
gence necessary to produce good drama, 
and I believe we have the talent and 

Before any dramatic club can receive 
the serious respect and consideration 
that it wishes, it must produce plays 
worthy of this Interest. That is easier 
said than done, but it seems to me 
that one method for achieving this end 
Is to cut down the number of produc- 
tions per year and lavish more care on 
the few which are left. Since it is ob- 
vious that a drama in which women 
take men's parts can never reach the 
same degree of perfection as one in 
which these parts are filled by men, 
it might prove more satisfying to both 
the audience and the cast if all our 
plays contained men. 

One possible solution might lie in 
turning for help to some of the ama- 
teur dramatic clubs in the vicinity of 
Wellesley, many of whose members not 
only have a great interest in drama 
and some real experience in it, but also 
a car or some other means of trans- 

When any progress is to be made, 
it is necessary to experiment; Wellesley 
should not be afraid to try new plans, 
and the trial and error system might 
prove useful in the end. I very timidly 
offer, as drama critic, two radical 
suggestions culled from conversations 
over a long period of time and from 
communications with dramatic clubs 
of other colleges. In the first place

unification, or at least coordination of

one play, and In the second the Idea 
of an invited audience. 

No doubt there is some question in 
many people's minds as to the necessity 
for changing anything about Barn- 
swallows We enjoy putting on plays 
and we like them to be fairly good. 
But many of us do not wish to stop 
there. We wish the drama here at 
college to grow better every year, and 
there is no reason why it should not. 
Perhaps we are hypercritical, but our 
Intense interest forces us to be so. Our 
suggestions may be entirely unworthy 
of thought, but they are an indica- 
tion that the students have sufficient 
interest in the drama to have 
opinions and to strive always for a 
higher goal.

1938 f s Parade of "Mosts" Continues 
to Reveal Characteristic Qualities 

The press asked the time of Eliza- 
beth Turner, the "Most Individual," 
and saw that none of the clocks was 
running. "I loathe clocks," she said. 
"I never wind them." 

Her stand in regard to college ac- 
tivities was new to us. "I believe 
you can't keep friends if you take 
part in the same activities with them, 
so I have studiously avoided activi- 
ties." The press eyed the crew 
sweater with its crossed oars. "Oh, 
I haven't kept friends in the things 
I am in. I have gained them only 
by keeping out of things." 

Her future, like her hair, has a 
charming, individual twist. She seri- 
ously plans to raise elk back home in 
Colorado "for saddle purposes." 

Gwendolyn Wilder looked charm- 
ing in a flowered dressing gown and 
curlers. And to look charming in 
curlers is the final proof of a pretty 
face. 1938's "Prettiest" necessarily 
had a hard interview. Her own re- 
action to her honor was defensive. 
"It isn't my fault," she said. "I give 
the credit to my mother." 

Asked about her parents' attitude, 
she quoted them as saying, "I guess 
she was worth our efforts." 

"Gweny" is to be married this fall, 
but will use her beauty to other good 
advantage in modeling in New York. 

Peg Miller was frankly puzzled. "My 
reaction? Just that it's all very funny. 
I can't imagine how I ever won the 
title 'Neatest.' " Then, as she recalled

The Living Wellesley 

This week-end the return of the alum- 
nae infuses new strength into the de- 
pleted student ranks. As eager to re- 
turn to their Alma Mater as the exam- 
fagged students are to make a tem- 
porary departure, their presence serves 
as a reminder of the place they fill in 
the scheme of college life. 

The years have seen middied maidens 
emerge from a somewhat chrysalid ex- 
istence to one of great freedom. But 
the women of thought, action, and per- 
sonality who return today are more 
than mere butterflies and bear witness 
that the start in creative living given 
them in college days has not been aban- 
doned. The alumnae return to reunion 
with their points of view broadened by 
travel, tempered by experience, and re- 
fined in retrospect. 

The swiftly rising frame of the swim- 
ming pool gives striking evidence of the 
material help which the alumnae give in 
making Wellesley a finer and more beau- 
tiful place. The mere fact that alum- 
nae do return to Wellesley is indicative 
of the less tangible, but none the less 
valuable, support they bring. This im- 
pression is strongly reinforced each time 
the alumnae fall into groups holding 
Japanese lanterns, and sing again at the 
old chapel steps. 

The number of women attending the 
Alumnae college to be held here at the 
close of the Commencement festivities 
points to a persistence of a healthy intel- 
lectual curiosity despite the three-meal- 
a-day bondage of housekeeping. Seniors, 
reluctant to bring to a close their four 
years of college, will do well to remember 
that they are not on the verge of solidi- 
fying into dead wood; they are graduat- 
ing into a larger organic body of which 
they may be living parts. 

Seven Good Years 

With the passing of this academic 
year a brief, impressive chapter of Wel- 
lesley history draws to a close, a chap- 
ter that has extended through seven 
years of change, transition and constant 
progressive growth within the college 
organization. It is for just that length 
of time that Dean Coolidge has directed 
our academic scene. In the fall of 1931 
Mary Lowell Coolidge came to Wellesley, 
bringing with her the rich experience of 
distinguished service at Bryn Mawr, 
Harvard, Radcliffe and Vassar, and an 
intense interest in educational prob- 
lems that is peculiarly her own. 

In the college archives Dean Cool- 
idge's regime represents a period of deep 
study and careful revision. The present 
program of concentration, the plan of 
distribution of courses, and the modern 
language examination requirements have 
been formulated under her guidance. As 
chairman of the faculty committee on 
curriculum she conducted an elaborate 
survey of instruction to effect the pool- 
ing of interests of faculty, alumnae and 
students, a laborious undertaking that 
yielded statistical results of undoubted 
benefit to both present and future ad- 

Now, after seven years of highly con- 
structive activity, Miss Coolidge has re- 
signed as dean of the college. After a 
year's leave of absence she will return 
to continue her work as professor of 
philosophy. Those who have known her 
in the classroom rejoice in that pros- 
pect. But the greater number of Wellesley 
students, those who aren't immediately 
concerned with Dean Coolidge's accom- 
plishments as an effective administrator 
or teacher, cannot help but feel a personal 
loss as she takes leave of the deanship. 
We do not often encounter the combina- 
tion of a scholarly mind with the liberal 
attitude towards college problems and 
the generous personal interest in indi- 
vidual students that characterizes our 
present dean. Beyond her official ca- 
pacity, in the social life of Wellesley she 
has made Oakwoods' hospitality a 
campus tradition, and those of us who 
have made her personal acquaintance 
will long remember the cordial atmos- 
phere of the deanery. 

On Dean Coolidge's departure we 
pause to wish her well, to assure her 
of a sincere welcome on her return to 
Wellesley, and to thank her for these 
seven years. 

Civil Responsibility 

Recently the most undignified inter- 
ference of a group of men, according to 
reliable reports identified as members of 
the American Legion, prevented Norman 
Thomas from making a speech in New- 
ark. This by no means unique incident, 
defended by Mayor Hague of Jersey City 
in a court case against the American 
Civil Liberties union, and, oddly enough, 
the C. I. O., comes as just one more 
jolt to our, by now, almost non-existent 
complacency regarding "undeniable" civil 

When called on for our opinion, most 
of us champion the right of free speech. 
And yet, because it does not directly 
concern us, we read of the case in ques- 
tion with casual interest. This passivity, 
if we are self-critical enough, we shall 
recognize as not unlike the attitude we 
deplore in the population of Fascist 
nations. The incident mentioned we shall 
find has distinct analogies in these same 

The success of the doctrine of civil 
liberties, which the Hague case so gross- 
ly violates, resolves itself into not so 
much a matter of making sure of one's 
own rights, as it does limiting personal 
liberty to an extent that the rights of 
others may be possible. Only when we 
have recognized the implications of our 
theories of civil liberties, of the inter- 
dependence and hence limitations of 
those "liberties," the necessity for tolera- 
tion of ideas not our own, only then 
will colleges as centers of liberal and 
intelligent thought, rather than roman- 
tic theorizing, become a reality.

Wellesley senior. I think a lot of them

would like to pass it on, especially at 
this point in the game.

Art Exhibit Offers 
Student Selections 

Show Displays Examples of 

Courses in Both History 

and Studio Technique 

The student exhibition in the Art 
Museum gallery is the last and largest 
event on this year's calendar. The 
works overflow the main gallery and 
are hung in the lecture room and cor- 
ridors as well. This year the showing 
is divided equally between laboratory 
studies from history courses and ex- 
amples from the courses in studio 
technique. Therefore an understanding 
of the importance of the show depends 
on an understanding of the require- 
ments and aims of both types of work. 

Elementary courses in both depart- 
ments are intended to give an intro- 
duction to the various types of tech- 
nique needed for more advanced study. 
In the first studio course a considerable 
amount of time Is spent on charcoal 
drawing, beginning with studies from 
casts and progressing to drawing from 
a model. In the figure drawings action 
is the primary concern, since time does 
not permit a detailed study of anatomy. 
Another large part of the year Is de- 
voted to watercolor; monochrome stu- 
dies of flowers to develop the student's 
sense of design and pattern as well as 
the importance of values in suggesting 
forms, and the next step is the use of 
full color. The still life illustrated on 
this page shows how the individual 
style of the student may find expres- 
sion in this very adaptable medium. 

The elementary studio course also 
spends a part of the year on sculpture. 
Confidence in the medium of expres- 
sion and the development of artistic 
individuality are strikingly emphasized 
In this branch of the work. 

The last quarter of the year is spent 

on the introduction to oil technique, 
considering problems of form, color, 
brushwork and light. The example of 
still life illustrated here is interesting 
also because the masks of which the 
composition is arranged were made by 
students of this course from previous 
years, for use in the annual Greek play. 
The landscapes as they are seen 
by each girl are hardly finished but 
unusual as elementary studies. 

Another studio course takes up in a 
more intensive manner the problems of 
design and composition. Textiles, 
posters and designs for stained glass 
show the application of the basic prin- 
ciples considered. 

In the laboratory work of the history 
of art courses the necessary instruction 
in technique is intended from the be- 
ginning to promote better understand- 
ing of the styles and aims of the artists 
considered in class, and eventunlly to 
enable the student to work out 
special problems in connection with i 
the lectures. Ink studies show the | 
timid beginner the importance of bold 
construction in liulit and shade and 
help give her confidence in herself. 
The elementary modelling experiments 
help give her an understanding of I 
Important planes. Bath of these meth- ! 
ods are important in discussing the j 
theory of art. to promote sympathy 
with the problems of the artists studied 
and to encourage the student in for- 
mulating standards of criticism. Studies 
in _, watercolor Involve elementary con- 
siderations of color relationships. 

In the secondary course 205, students 
learn to deal with Die problem of ex- 
pressing form in terms of the gradation 
of values. A sequence of problems is 
arranged, beginning with studies in 
black and white chalk on grey paper, 
represented by an Illustration here. 
The next step is the introduction to 
oils by monochrome still life studies. 
These first oils help the student to 
overcome the terror which strange 
tubes of paint can produce. When she 
has more or less mastered one color in 


Wellesley can boast of having 
its own artist as well as its own 
museum. This very unusual per- 
son is Miss Abbot, who retreated 
shyly into a corner as we ad- 
vanced upon her. Though hardly 
recovered from doing her share of 
the work in hanging the student 
exhibition, she was cheerful and 
composed, and furnished us with 
the following tidbits of informa- 
tion: that she lived in Germany 
until she was about nineteen, and 
studied art there, not very seri- 
ously: that her family then moved 
to Boston, where she attended the 
Child-Walker school of design for 
four years; then she studied what 
Is now her favorite kind of paint- 
ing — landscape — with artists here 
and there, notably around Ogun- 
qult. On a recent sabbatical year 
she went sketching In Italy. This 
summer she plans to stay home 
(Harvard, Mass.) and paint. The 
subject-matter of her home town 
she characterized most despondent- 
ly as "desperately green." She 
didn't want to talk about her own 
work; but we know that she has 
watercolor landscapes hanging in 
various museums, even if she is 
modest about them. 

in Florentine painting. Appreciation of 
the aims and ideals of an artist is 
encouraged by attempts at working 
out original problems in a par- 
ticular style as well as by copying 
characteristic examples of it. The wash 
drawings in the style of Rembrandt 
and oils in the style of Cezanne or 
Matisse are important for the same 
reason, that they clarify the stylistic 
individuality of those artists. The ori- 
ginal interior in the style of Matisse 
i which is illustrated here shows how 
much the ideals of Matisse were appre- 
ciated and how they were effectively 
used. The student has an opportunity 
to work in a style to which she is 
sympathetic. Opportunities to do 
wholly original work are not featured 
in all of the advanced courses, but 
familiarity with the problems and solu- 
tions of past artists may be of meat 
value to the student who intends even- 
tually to do creative work of her own. 

Characteristic advanced problems are 
the studies of the coloring of Peter 

Museum Holds Rich, 
Varied Collection 

Having a permanent museum col- 
lection of art objects may be enjoy- 
able in the abstract as well as extremely 
convenient for students of the history 
of art. The museum contains a variety 
of things: Egyptian Jewelry from the 
New Empire, Hellenistic sculpture and 
17th century Venetian paintings, a 
collection which serves to illustrate 
that although the collection is small, 
the range is a wide one. 


Every 101 student studies the Antioch 
mosaic and the Greek and Egyptian 
items from various periods. Almost 
every 205 student is familiar with the 
little early Ccrot. one of the most de- 
lightful pictures In the collection. But 
the dark little panel of Adam and Eve 
and Cod. by the Venetian painter 
Fouarinl, is an inconspicuous and 
Bruegel in the course in Northern I charming example of the seventeenth 
painting. Pencil drawing is useful for century Venetian intimate style, with 
stylistic notations and comparisons: all the Venetian richness of color 
the careful rendering of details en- and shadow. Anyone interested in 

the difficult medium, the next step In 
the form of still-life studies in full 
color Is accomplished fairly easily. 
Problems closely related to the subject- 
matter of the lectures are represented 
by the watercclor studies of medieval 

lined glass. 

Problems in laboratory work are still 
more closely integrated with the sub- 

1 1 -matter of the advanced courses. 
Experimentation In the styles and me- 
dia used by the artists studied Is fea- 
tured. In some cases the medium used 
Is one no longer in common use, as In 
the tempera studies done in the course 

English china will seek out the fine 
examples of Lowestoft ware, a style 
which for handsome simplicity has not, 
in our opinion, been surpassed in the 
last century and a half. Other and 

courages the development of an "eye 
for style." 


The course in Renaissance and mod- 
ern sculpture includes both relief work still less conspicuous treasures can be 
and sculpture in the round. An illus- ' found If one is willing to make a lel- 
tratlon of one of the most enlightening I surely tour of the gallery. Having

marked differences in the results show 
how the interpretation of the artist 
chosen was understood as accompany- 
ing his technique. 

The studio courses at this college are 
not emphasized as much as they often 
are elsewhere: but the show as a whole. 
comprising both types of work, is a 
most gratifying one.

It has intrinsic value as it is related to 
the whole history of art. Gaps in the 
record are unavoidable; a museum is a 
luxury article, one expensive to main- 
tain and not absolutely essential to 
study, when there are so many fine 
large collections near at hand. But 
when, from time to time, an object is 
added to the collection. It is a matter 
of general interest and pride to us all.
